The coast path at St Agnes Head

St Agnes Head is a cliff-bound headland on the noth coast of Cornwall, to the northwest of St Agnes, where the coast turns south. Above the headland rises St Agnes Beacon. All the coast here and the beacon belong to the National Trust.

The lands around the headland bear heavily the signs of tin mining in past centuries; chimneys, engine houses and mine buildings stand abandoned here. The headland and its landscape are part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site.

The South West Coast Path runs around St Agnes Head.
